Home Sunbed Types
When you think about home sunbeds, you may be picturing the older models that never quite measured up to their commercial counterparts. But the truth is that home sunbed technology has changed significantly over recent years, and today there is more choice than ever before when it comes to finding the right sunbed for home use.
Home Sunbed Bulb Options
Unlike in the past, there’s no such thing as a standard ‘home sunbed’ now. Depending on the type of bulb you choose - yes, there’s more than one! - you can create a customised sunbed tailored exactly to your needs and preferences. Whether you want a healthy glow, or more youthful looking skin, you can adapt the purpose of practically any domestic sunbed simply by selecting a lamp that helps you achieve your skin goals:
- Maxlite - This is a high quality tanning lamp that produces professional-grade results in your own home. If you want to build up a healthy-looking glow and develop your colour, Maxlite sets the industry standard in UV light tubes.
- iSOLde Advantage - If you’re always finding yourself short on time, the high performance iSOLde Advantage bulb is a top alternative to Maxlite. Designed to produce an enviable tan in less than 7 minutes, it’s great when you can’t wait.
- Collagen - Emitting a red light rather than UV light, collagen lamps help to stimulate collagen production in the body to improve elasticity and suppleness in the skin. It’s fast emerging as a top treatment to reduce minor signs of aging.
- Collatan - Combining both UV and red light therapies, the innovative collatan bulb stimulates collagen synthesis while also exposing the skin to tan-producing UVA light. This helps you improve your skin’s condition and tan at the same time.
- Vitamin D Lime Lite Twist - Using a green light, this revolutionary bulb can help to improve the appearance of the skin by minimising sagging and dark circles and targeting discolouration caused by hyper pigmentation or broken capillaries.
- Hellarium T12: A specialist tube designed to reduce the symptoms of psoriasis, the Hellarium T12 lamp emits greater levels of UVB than standard tanning lamps, helping to minimise dryness and scaling and slow overactive cell reproduction.
Choosing Your Home Sunbed
These fantastic tanning and skin-boosting lamps will fit into most home sunbeds, so you can ‘mix and match’ tanning technologies to create the perfect home sunbed for you. Once you’ve selected the right bulb, all you have to do is find the right unit to put it in:
- Lie Flat - These are the types of sunbeds you’ve probably already used in a tanning salon. You lie down inside the tube and enjoy a relaxing, unwinding experience. Some advanced models even offer built-in entertainment options.
- Stand Up - A more modern alternative to the traditional style, these sunbeds allow you to simply stand up inside in the unit, tanning at all angles at the same time. They’re great for the home as they take up less floor space than others.
- Over Bed -If you’re short on space, an over bed canopy could be just what you’re looking for. These easy-to-manoeuvre sunbeds can be moved to any surface - including your own bed or sofa - so you really can tan anywhere.
Years ago, there was a huge difference in the quality - and in the results - of commercial and domestic sunbeds. Today, there’s not. Tanning technology has advanced so much that it’s now possible to achieve salon-quality results in your own home. So whether you’re thinking about hiring a sunbed, or buying a sunbed for the home, rest assured that home sunbeds really can help you glow with confidence.
Do you ever get sunburned when you try to get a tan outdoors? Or do you end up with blaring tan lines? Sunbeds can offer you a better, safer and quicker tan, and with the home sunbed models we have available, you don’t even have to leave the house.
Benefits of Using Sunbeds for Tanning at Home
The benefits of tanning are cosmetic in nature, but you also get a natural dose of vitamin D from sunbeds as an added benefit. Here’s what makes sunbeds so beneficial for tanning:
Safer than the Sun
Sunbed results are even better than natural tanning out in the sun because it exposes you to only the least harmful wavelengths on the UV light spectrum. Instead of burning, the gentler exposure brings you to a natural tan. According to experts, sunbeds are better for your skin than long periods of sunlight exposure.
Gives you Greater Control
The amount of UV light you get from the sun depends on the time of day, as well as the weather and even the atmosphere’s pollution levels. Being able to get your tan when the sun is too strong and when the sun is hidden behind thick clouds is what makes sunbeds so popular. With control over the exact amount of time you spend, you can achieve just the right tan and ensure so you don’t burn.
Gives You a Better Tan
In the privacy of a sunbed, you can tan nude and achieve an even, sun-kissed hue without clothing or swim costume lines. By exposing you to less harmful UV rays than the sun, sunbeds prevent burning and dryness, leading to a healthier-looking tan.
Saves You Money and Time
When you own your own home tanning bed, you can save money on salon trips and tanning products. You also get the convenience of tanning in a short period without leaving your home, which saves you a lot of time in the long run.
If you’re familiar with sunbeds because you’ve been in one at a tanning salon, then you already have a sense for using a sunbed safely. Always read the instruction manual that came with your sunbed cover to cover before you start using one. Everyone’s skin is different, and knowing your skin’s tolerance to UV exposure is important when you’re just beginning.
Sunbed Advice: How to Tan without Burning
Like with sun exposure, your skin’s exposure to UV light in a sunbed must be limited. This gives your skin cells the time they need to repair and heal fast enough to avoid damage. Here are some at home sunbed tanning tips for ensuring your exposure doesn’t lead to harm:
- You can get burnt from sunbed tanning so limit your sessions to 6-10 minutes at a time to prevent burning.
- Allow 48 hours between sunbed tanning sessions to ensure your skin has recovered.
- Drink extra fluids before and after a session to keep your skin from dehydrating.
- Limit your sessions to 2 to 3 per week .
When Is It Too Much Tanning?
Tanning becomes too much when your skin’s repairing process can’t keep up with your sessions. Everyone’s skin has different levels of sensitivity to UV rays. Therefore, it’s important you know and look out for the signs of overexposure that can crop up after a session that was one too many or a few minutes too long. These signs can include:
- Dry skin
- Burnt skin
- Flu-like symptoms
Bonus Sunbed Tips: Showering Do’s and Don’ts
If you’re wondering whether it’s best to take a shower before or after sunbed tanning, the answer is probably both. However, whether you need a shower after depends on whether you used sunbed cream. The only reason to shower after a sunbed session is to wash off the oily cream and then moisturize with a normal daily moisturizing cream. If you tanned without lotion, you can get away with simply applying a lightweight moisturizer after your session.
It’s best to shower within the few hours before a sunbed tanning session, because it allows you to prepare your skin for the healthiest session. Use a gentle exfoliator to remove dead skin cells, and follow up your shower with a quality moisturizer.
Sunbed tanning is an increasingly popular alternative to sunbathing because of its convenience and safety. Sunbeds have tube-shaped light bulbs inside that emit UV rays – the same light as you get from the sun. By shining this light on your skin’s surface, sunbeds enable you to get an even tan in a controlled environment. The technology in sunbeds has improved, and the best sunbeds available today are safer than ever, and some feature red light therapy for improving your skin’s health.
Do Sunbeds Work?
Safe sunbed use does give you a darker hue and a natural glow. A sunbed tan is safer than getting a sun tan because it doesn’t expose you to the full UV spectrum of sunlight. You may see results after your first session on a sunbed, or you can do 2 or 3 sessions in 1 or 2 week period to reach your desired result.
How to Tan Better with Sunbed Tanning
Using sunbeds for the first time? Here’s what you need to know:
- Wear protective eye goggles designed for use on a sunbed.
- Session time shouldn’t exceed 12 minutes regardless of your skin type.
- If you have fair skin, your first session should be just 6 minutes, and you can work your way up to 9 or 12 minute sessions.
- Allow a full 48 hours or more between tanning sessions for best results.
- Shower to exfoliate and then moisturize your skin prior to a tanning session.
- Shower after sunbed use to wash off any used sunbed creams and apply moisturizer.
- How many sunbed sessions to get a tan depends on your skin’s sensitivity and fairness. Lighter skin requires less tanning time for the same results. Applying sunbed cream 30 minutes before a session is the best way to accelerate the process.
- Wearing sunbed cream is important if you have fair skin, to protect against burning.
If you value a healthy, sun-kissed glow, then knowing how to tan safely is vital. Let’s look at how to use sunbeds, what makes them safe to use, and what could potentially put your skin in danger.
Advantages of Sunbeds for Safer Tanning
Wondering how to tan and not burn? Sunbeds emit UV light at a safer wavelength, without the stronger wavelengths included in the full spectrum your skin absorbs from sunlight. When used properly, this makes sunbeds actually a safer way to tan.
Sunbed Safety: How to Use a Sunbed
Always read the instruction manual before plugging in and turning on your sunbed. It’s important to have someone around whenever you use a sunbed, in case you fall asleep. The main concern around sunbeds, however, is the risk for skin damage. When going in the sun, you need moderation and limited exposure to avoid damaging your skin, and it’s the same thing with home tanning beds.
How Often to Use Sunbeds
How often to use sunbeds depends on your skin type. In general, it’s advised not to have more than 2 to 3 sunbed sessions per week, with 48 hours between sessions .
How to Protect Your Eyes in a Sunbed
Your sunbed will come with protective eye goggles to prevent the penetration of harmful UV rays that could affect your vision while tanning. These also help you relax by darkening the brightness of the UV light, these should be worn at all time.
Who Should Avoid Using Sunbeds?
Sunbeds aren’t for everyone. Here are some of the risk groups that should proceed with caution:
- People with Fair Skin – If you have fair skin, you have an increased risk of developing malignant melanoma, or skin cancer, from UV rays – whether from the sun or sunbeds.
- Pregnant Women – Pregnant women's skin can be more sensitive we have a full article on this you can read here
- People with a History of Skin Conditions – If you’ve had any skin conditions in the past, even if it’s been taken care of, avoiding tanning altogether is wise, since you have a higher risk for developing issues from UV exposure again.
- Children Under 18 – It’s illegal for anyone under 18 to use a sunbed, wether in a business setting or at home, according to the Sunbeds Regulation Act of 2010.
